The Board of Directors for The American Conservative (TAC) seeks to hire an experienced Chief Executive Officer to act as the organization’s staff leader.
This position calls for an entrepreneurial and strategic professional to lead TAC’s programs, editorial content, fundraising, and growth. The ideal candidate will demonstrate a successful track record of managing teams and developing external partnerships and will have deep and extensive knowledge of the American conservative intellectual and political traditions.
The CEO oversees the entire organization. He or she is responsible for managing, supporting, and cultivating TAC’s talented editorial and leadership teams. Responsibilities also include advancing TAC’s mission, ensuring effective operations, strengthening its programs, growing revenue through fundraising and other means, maintaining fiscal health, and expanding the influence and impact of TAC’s work.
The success of the CEO will largely depend upon the extent at which the CEO can lead projects, people, and ideas through strong interpersonal and communication skills. As with any leadership role, this position requires someone who can be a strong internal presence in creating cohesion as well as an outwardly visible presence in sharing the mission and vision of TAC with the media, partners, government officials, and donors. Writing and editorial experience in the conservative world is a plus.
Over the past few years, TAC has transformed from a small start-up journal to a leading interlocuter in the American political and cultural conversation. In less than four years, TAC has doubled its annual revenue, dramatically expanded its audience, and launched new programs, such as its podcasts, video production, and the Constitutional Fellows Program. TAC has quickly become an increasingly influential voice in national conservatism by promoting traditional conservative ideas about foreign policy, culture, and “Main Street Conservatism.” This new position will build upon the success TAC has achieved and help make the organization one of the most influential on the American Right. Fundraising experience is required.
